Jesse is required to have access to a specific app for his program...

Neither Jesse or I had app capable devices.

Jesse was talking to his classmates about what he was thinking of buying so that he could access the app.

We weren't into smart phones. So that was out.

The top two contenders were the ipad...great for reading slides and reading online, or the ipod touch...similar capabilities as the ipad, but small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket.

Both are expensive, and we were seriously dreading the prospect of forking over the cash.

"I think I'm just going to buy an ipod." Jesse told his classmates.

Then one of them piped in, "I have an ipod you can have. I won it, so it was free, but I have an iphone and don't need it."

When Jesse asked how much she would like for it, the girl basically said,


That means, dear world, we owe you one.

Don't worry though, we'll be happy to pay you back as opportunities present themselves.


  1. YAY!!! This is such a happy post and I love it :D :D :D

  2. Awesome! People rock.

    And I'm sorry the move is rough. Settling in is always hard and distance just increases that difficulty. But one day at a time - it'll be great and you'll learn to love it there. Good luck! We're thinking of you.

  3. There truly are genuine good people in the world. And you happened upon one of them! I AM SOOOO happy for you! So happy! Now, when Jesse is home, we can facetime :)

  4. okay. we are moving to maryland!

  5. Wow, that post brought a tear of joy to one eye! You are great. God is good. Life is wonderful.
